Sunburst Fender Stratocaster

 

Here we have a modern Genuine Fender Stratocaster it has the improved bridge over the vintage style, the owner wanted it to look a little battered, and to have a nicer sunburst applied, the original yellow was very dark and a much brighter more 70's style was required.

The body was completely stripped back to wood and a nitro cellulose finish applied, the the usual wait for the paint to fully harden before the relicing could start.

 

 

Although not complete this shows some details of the ageing to the plastic parts, notice the cracking on the pickup covers, dirty worn parts etc

Just one shot during preperation... the body routings were finished in shielding paint so this was left intact.
